Crockett County Museum

Ozona's Premiere Museum

Museum Bridal Exhibit 2017

Everyone knows that the month of June is bridal season, that is why the Crockett County Museum has designated the month of June to showcase its unique Bridal Exhibit. We have wedding dresses that date back all the way from the year 1909 to present day.

The Bridal Exhibit is featured every five years, the last one on display was June 2012 with about 17 dresses on display. This year the exhibit grew more than twice its size with over 30 dresses to display and family history to go with each.

It is located on the main floor of the museum and will be featured until Labor Day 2017. There halls are lined with photographs, accessories and stories to share with anyone interested in observing this unique exhibit.

The museum is open Monday through Friday 9AM to 5PM and Saturday 10AM to 3PM there is a $3.00 admittance fee to tour the museum. If only interested in touring the Bridal Exhibit we accept donations in lieu of entrance fee.

 

 

Where has the time gone?

It’s been a while since our last update here at the Crockett County Museum but as the saying goes “history never gets old”.

The museum hosted its Membership Drive and Appreciation Dinner on September 20, 2016, at the Ozona Youth Center. Michael Barr was our guest speaker for this event. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history and government from the University of Texas at Austin and an MA in history from Texas State University.  He was a teacher and a principal at Fredericksburg, Johnson City, and Gatesville.  He taught at Austin Community College, Temple College, and Baylor University.  His stories have appeared in Old West, True West, Texas Highways, and Southwestern Historical Quarterly.  He is the author of Rope Burns and Lead Poisoning – a collection of Old West stories.  His latest book is Remembering Bulldog Turner (Texas Tech University Press), an INDIEFAB award winner in the sports category.  His stories have been featured on “The Sounds of Texas” radio program hosted by Tumbleweed Smith.  His “Hindsights” column appears in the Fredericksburg Standard and Radio Post, the Johnson City Record-Courier, and in TexasEscapes.com – an online magazine.  He and his wife Ginger live in Fredericksburg, Texas.

Sandy Glover was the winner of our  Annual Wool and Mohair Show raffle on December 3, 2016 and we also participated in the Chamber of Commerce Night on the Town December 8, 2016.

Learning Never Stops for OES!!!!

We would like to thank  Ozona Elementary School for coming to visit our local museum. We greatly enjoyed your company and cant wait for next years bunch!

Guess Who Stomped right in??!!

Ivan Weir from Ontario, Canada stopped by the museum April 29, 2016. He was one of the few people who helped to restore the 1892 Gig located at the museum. The Gig was then purchased by Mr. Gene Perry who in turn donated it to the Crockett County Historical Society. A Gig is defined as a two wheeled vehicle, that was used with two people riding it facing towards the front.

Ivan caught our attention when he arrived to the museum. He was very interested in going up to our third floor and visiting our buggy room. He had quiet a bit of history on how this Gig ended up here at our local Museum and gave plenty of detail. We thanked him for stopping by and also thanked him for the work he put in to make such a wonderful Carriage ride many tourist enjoy seeing at or local museum.
